DAVID BUCHBINDER’S ODESSA HAVANA
David Buchbinder teams up with a crew of top Jazz and World musicians to present this exhilarating, project of musical discovery: the Jewish-Cuban connection. Odessa/Havana presents “dazzlingly tuneful music, with powerful, swinging and lyrical playing”, that is “passionate, dancing and completely irresistible.”
A jazz virtuoso blessed with a pop sensibility, Elizabeth Shepherd has been praised around the world for her soulful music. Her 5th album “The Signal” is a conceptual record complete with arresting set design; a personal feminist manifesto of sorts, where the music is coloured by everything from hip hop beats to the West African inflections of guitar master Lionel Loueke (Angélique Kidjo), and the lyrics touch on such topics as witchcraft and war, motherhood and Monsanto.
Mauritanian-Senegalese singer-songwriter Daby Touré never fails to astound audiences with his ethereal voice, masterful guitar work and catchy original songs. New album on Cumbancha out May, 2015.
Ghanaian star Rocky Dawuni straddles the musical boundaries between Africa, the Caribbean and the US to create a universally appealing sound that unites generations and cultures. New album on Cumbancha in March, 2015.
A consummate singer, percussionist, and guitarist, Aurelio’s passion flows not only from his love of music, but also from his commitment to the cause of raising awareness and appreciation for Garifuna music and culture, both at home in Garifuna communities and internationally.
His explosive live show will turn any situation into a party for both the latin fans and a larger audience. Boogat is skillful in creating a connection and communicating with the audience during his shows where he plays his repertoire with a percussionist, a drummer and trombone player.
NATION BEAT’S CARNIVAL CARAVAN
The heartbeat of Nation Beat’s sound lies in a deliciously original 21st century fusion between thunderous Brazilian maracatu drumming and New Orleans second line rhythms. It is also the vibrant force of their explosive live show, which is frequently known to burst into crowd-wide Carnival-style drumming and singing.
Rapping in English, French, Creole, Spanish and Arabic, Nomadic Massive is Montreal Hip-Hop’s best kept secret. Spreading their sound across borders and cultures, the group has captivated audiances and critics worldwide. Sharing a message of universal understanding and social justice, they are currently recording their brand new album which is set to be released in 2015.
